I love this book. It's simple and to the point. It's about how all girls, despite the color of their skin or how able their bodies are or how feminine they choose to be, are beautiful. It shows girls through the stunning illustrations created by Joanne Lew-Vriethoff that being a girl is wonderful. Stacy McAnulty wanted to portray that girls can do anything! They can be into sports or the sciences or the arts! They can be feminine or masculine. They can do whatever they want and that, in and of itself, is a beautiful thing.
I love this book. It has become one of my favorite picture books. And I highly encourage you read this book! This is good for everyone to read! I do mean everyone! It will encourage little girls to become who they want to be and it will educate little boys that girls are their equal. So please share this book with someone in your life. It's truly a beautiful one.
